Issues fixed[edit]

Game appears stretched horizontally[edit]

Fix incorrect aspect ratio[1]
Many ScummVM games are designed to run at 320x200, but with a 4:3 aspect ratio. To set this, enable Aspect ratio correction in the Graphics tab of the game's options.
This is likely to cause unevenly sized pixels. See Some pixels are taller than others.

Some pixels are taller than others[edit]

This is usually caused by aspect ratio correction.
Enable filter graphics[1]
  1. Open the ScummVM launcher and edit the game's options.
  2. Under the Graphics tab, check Filter graphics.
  3. Click OK.
This will result in a slightly blurrier picture. For optimal results, use in conjunction with a scaler such as 3x.
